Summary

Explores theoretical and pedagogical approaches to "resistance," showing how this concept plays out in the college writing classroom.

A provocative collaboration by some of the foremost scholars in composition studies, this book explores both the theoretical and pedagogical approaches to "resistance." The contributors clarify not only the meaning(s) of resistance, through both a political and historical framework, but also demonstrate how the manifestation of resistance plays out in the writing classroom.

"Strikes a sound balance between discussions of theory and discussions of pedagogy." -- Nels P. Highberg, Assistant Director of Composition, University of Illinois at Chicago

"This is not a small safe collection of scholarly minutiae--it is intellectually rigorous work that matters. Every one of the essays has important consequences either for the field and discipline of comp-rhet or for teachers of comp-rhet or (most often) both." -- James Zebroski, author of Thinking Through Theory: Vygotskian Perspectives on the Teaching of Writing

Contributors include Dale Bauer, Stephen Brown, Elizabeth Flynn, Tom Fox, Keith Gilyard, Andrea Greenbaum, Bruce Horner, Gary A. Olson, Elaine Richardson, Ellen Strenski, John Trimbur, Janice Walker, and Susan Wells.

Andrea Greenbaum is Assistant Professor at Barry University.
